The First Time

On my first trip to the beach
the sea refused to cooperate.

It kept curling and whirling
           bobbing and weaving
           clearing its throat
           whenever a wave drew back.

It kept moving and grooving
          shucking and jiving
          dishing and dancing
          razzling and dazzling

wouldn’t keep still even
long enough to shake hands.
